of the connecticut mass shooting are being laid to rest, funerals for three little girls were held today, as families say their final goodbyes the battle over gun control heatlin heating up. more on that in a moment. the fiscal cliff, ten days away with no deal in sight, the president and speaker boehner are thousands of miles away from each other, each left washington for the holiday. we will have live report from hawaii and the latest on the fiscal cliff talks in just a few minutes as well. it's official, bp oil company will have to pay up to $7.8 billion, that is the class action settlement amount they agreed to pay to 100,000 businesses and individual has h by the biggest oil spill in history. the settlement was finalized yesterday, a lot of them are opting out and pursuing lawsuits of their own. >>> more affects of a brand new government's growing pans. this man announced that political life does not agree with him and he will go back to being a judge. it's the same day that the people are voting for a change to the new islamist backed constitution. protests broke out last month when the preside
in newtown, connecticut. here's what bothered me. the nra spokesperson have been following deal with every possible cause of gun violence except guns. >> barbara, there have been hard-core outrage. what are opponents saying? >> people are making the point that school districts across the country have grappled with this question for years about putting armed security guards on school grounds. this is not new. but the advocates of more gun control, if you will, more gun laws, the opposite of the nra, they offered this reminder. they say that, again, there was an armed security officer at the columbine high school on the day of that 1999 massacre and that controlling gun violence requires a package of solutions beyond the schoolhouse door. the nra, of course, disagrees. miguel? >> you know your way around the corridors of power in washington. did the nra, wayne lapierre hurt himself in friday by what can only be described as this rant? >> well, look, emotions across the country are running so high, aren't they, on this? many people i think would believe this is the 9/11 moment of the gun cont
. >> people across the country, we just heard from the mayor of bridgeport, connecticut, a few minutes ago, a lot of folks trying to get guns off the streets right now. two rocket launchers were part of the 2,000 guns that were part of the buyback a few days ago. is that a better method than putting more guns in tnoticein schools? >> i doubt the rocket launchers are legal right now. the best solution would be to have a police officer in each school. and we have had a program like that for many years. it's called school resource officers, they not only help protect against violence, but they teach a course or two in police work in leadership. they make friends with the kids that are there every day. >> what about the cost of that? what about the cost of that? >> that's the problem, we only had it in perhaps 10% of the schools and when the fiscal crisis hit in 2008, the legislatu legislature had to cut back from that. so it's in a small percentage of the schools. so my proposal is second best. the preference is to have the school resource officers in the schools, that would be the best solut
, connecticut. and for those not as technologically savvy, danny halfly of kentucky proves there are more old-fashioned ways to show one's ignorance in 2012. halfly says there is nothing racist about this barack obama mannequin, holding a slice of watermelon. halfly put the display up around election day and doesn't plan on taking it down anytime soon. >> it's a mix of white collar suits with blue-collar clothes peeking out. >> i'd be a millionaire. >> and watermelon. >> i thought he might get hungry standing out here. >> reporter: danny halfly has seen many a person standing out here taking pictures with the president. >> that's my buddy. >> obama's your buddy? >> well, this is? he don't talk, he don't make no smart comments. >> "he don't talk, he don't make no smart comment." might as we say uppity. halfly claims he doesn't understand why the mannequin is considered racist. he also says it's his right to display the mannequin. >> the way i look at it, it's freedom of speech. >> freedom of speech, indeed. let's hear some more speech from social activist, reverend marcia dyson and marc morial
. then there was the newtown, connecticut, massacre. that has influence the attitudes of friends and families and people i know. the tragedy of that day just a week ago, in which 26 people lost their lives, 24 of them were children between the ages of five and 10. it hangs over this usually happy season. even so, i feel grateful this year. maybe more than usual for my colleagues here at fox. with my friends and my family. we live in a country that yes, has its problems. and we talk about those problems everyday on the show. but the bottom line is this. you wouldn't want to live anywhere else, would you? i sure wouldn't. we have freedom, we have opportunity, and many of us, most of us have a roof over our heads and a safe place to sleep at night. the icing on the cake will be wrapped in boxes under the tree. but it will be in spending time with family and friends. and we know that now this year better than almost any year that i can ever remember. that, my friends, is a true blessing. merry christmas. that is what i think. now we want to know when you think. here's our question tonight. what is the emphasis in

proposal was made in connecticut to make it a felony to own high capacity magazines with more than ten bullets. but as part of a campaign organized by the nra and other gun advocates, opponents to the law swapped state legislatures with 30,000 letters and e-mails and showed up enmasse to a committee hearing to oppose the law. gun makers warn that the billion dollar firearms industry would move its jobs elsewhere if the bill passed and in the end, not surprisingly, the proposal died. so last friday, in newtown, connecticut, adam lanza used a bushmaster ar-15 rifle with still legal magazines holding not ten, but 30 rounds, to kill those 26 souls at sandy hook elementary. with me at the table today is anthea butler, professor of religious studies at the university of pennsylvania. msnbc contributor ari melber of the nation magazine. joe watkins, republican strategist and former aide to president george h.w. bush and mark glaze, director of mayors against illegal guns. so that was a lot, a lot to deal with, a lot of history of the nra. it's interesting because in the history of the nra it

it is something else. i think we have seen that kind of regionalization of laws. connecticut had an assault weapons ban that didn't prevent this tragedy from happening and didn't outlaw the kind of gun you would want to be outlawed for that kind of tragedy. i don't know that the federal government will be able to slice and dice. it will be very difficult and very close if they are able to get something done. i know there is going to be a big push on it. the president is going to speak on it. they will have to marshall all of their good will after this to try to figure out what can be done. >> all right. thanks. we'll see you later on in the show. >>> as the nation's most powerful gun lobby group doubles down for the call for armed guards at schools we are learning more about adam lanza. the washington post today has a quote from his former first grade teacher who says there was a quiet depth to him that i couldn't penetrate. let's bring in national political reporter and bob franken, a syndicated columnist. welcome to both of you. before we get started i want to play you more on the intervi
